I don’t think I can sum this project up better than the testimonial I received so I’ll simply say the brief for this project was a challenge but the shoot was well planned and a great deal of fun. the kids where great to work with and I’m really happy with the results.
Testimonial from: Jerry Price, Head of Music Winterfold House School
“I requested MGR Photography to take photos for an installation in our brand new ‘Performing Arts Center‘, which had just been opened by ‘HRH the Duke of Wessex’. Many different groups including ballet, music, Taekwondo, dance and drama use the space. I wanted a set of eight large prints to represent the various usage of the room of similar style and theme. Perhaps hardest of all was the brief that the photos could not show the faces of any children on them (to avoid the prints aging as pupils left the school). Matt came in for half a day and worked brilliantly with a wide range of pupils in many different guises and outfits! I was so impressed with the way they seemed to work effortlessly with children of all different ages, getting right down to their level to achieve the best results. The shoot ran dead on time, an essential feature when time is limited. Matt then went away with hundreds of images and managed to produce fifteen images for our perusal. With the sunlight streaming down on them from the skylights they look superb and give the room a completely contemporary and artistic feel. They are a real talking point for pupils, staff and prospective parents. I would really recommend MGR Photography. Matt is brilliant at taking the shots in situ, working with people and then doing some very clever editing.”
